A great synth with possibilities many other synths don't offer - like microtuning and extremely fast LFO (reasons I bought it). Chaning some parameters sometimes requires to dig into menus hidden behind sequencer buttons. A bit uncomfortable in the beginning. There's one thing which should be pointed out when buying this synth - it comes without power adapter. Thomann should sell it as a kit with a suitable one (took me quite a while to figure out which one would fit best).
Unfortunately there was an error. Please try again later.
Huge little synth
Actually, for reasons of space, I did not want a synthesizer with a built-in keyboard. For the monologue I had to make but an exception and did not regret it. The synth is also very compact despite the keyboard, whereby I manage with the smaller keyboard well, but what can look different in other hands.
What's more, what KORG has squeezed into this small machine: 2 VCOs with sync / ring modulation and wave shaping + distortion + sequencer + mini-screen make my Moog Minitaur look quite old in terms of features and tonal diversity. Regarding the sound are the devices but mainly because of the filter so dissimilar that a general comparison goes fast in the direction of apples and pears.
Very nice, that KORG does not have the socket for external audio in has forgotten. This, in combination with the aggressive 12 dB filter and the distortion unit, increases the sound possibilities once again. In the Global menu, the input can only be switched on / off, an adaptation of the sensitivity is missing. In a directly connected volca fm (YT: monologue explorative jam) I had to throttle the output of the volca noticeably to avoid (additional) distortions.
Apart from that, I only seriously miss the connection for a sustain pedal, everything else (no arpeggiator, simple envelope, no LFO random) is easy to get over.
